Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: is it possible to speak with someone? as my questions is rather complicated?
JA: Was this discussed with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?
Customer: no this is the first time i am asking
JA: Is the workplace "at will" or union? Is the job hourly or salaried?
Customer: i was self employed as a real estate agent, that was receiving a retainer that i pay back, they company took out of my commission $5k as a reduction in a vendors fee that was not promised by myself or written anywhere, and i was not notified of this, and they also took off the top of the vendors fee a referral amount which i have only just found out. I have left this company and now paying this all back, however i want to know if i have to pay the $5k back as they had no legal right to take this amount out and same with the referral fee
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no i think this is all, is this better to be done over the phone? and will this cost me
